A dlaczego nie "Ta kobieta straciła swój portfel"?

It would be strange to hear that. Stracić would be used if the action of losing is caused by something/someone external, not subject i.e. you can lose money - stracić pieniądze (on stock market) and lose money - zgubić pieniądze (you forgot where you had put your coins/bills).

It would be correct if we were f.ex. describing a robbery, that caused the lost.
